Brian Girard "B.G." James (born May 20, 1969) is an American {{professional wrestl|ing}}er born in Marietta, UsefulNotes/{{Georgia|USA}} and resides in Jay, UsefulNotes/{{Florida}} who is best known for his work for his work in Wrestling/{{WWE}} as '''"Road Dogg" Jesse James''' or just '''Road Dogg'''. His career began in 1986 when he wrestled as '''Brian Armstrong''' in the indies, though he would alternate time spent wrestling with tours of duty in the [[SemperFi United States Marine Corps]]. In 1994, he would make his then-WWF debut as a [[{{Mooks}} assistant]] to Wrestling/JeffJarrett named '''The Roadie'''. Their partnership lasted only a year before they both departed for the United States Wrestling Association. James returned to the WWF a year later under the ring name '''"The Real Double J" Jesse James''', where he would play the role as a {{Jobber}} until he began a feud with fellow jobber [[Wrestling/BillyGunn The Rockabilly]], and they would eventually find true success by forming one of the most successful tag teams in WWE history, The New Age Outlaws. Together, the Outlaws won the WWF World Tag Team Titles 5 times, aligning themselves with and eventually joining Wrestling/DGenerationX. After the Outlaws split up [[RealLifeWritesThePlot due to Billy Gunn's injury]], Jesse James briefly tagged with [[Wrestling/SeanWaltman X-Pac]], and later with [[Wrestling/RonKillings K-Kwik]], before being indefinitely suspended, and later released, by the WWF in 2001.

Over the course of his first WWE run, he held the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/wwf-hc.html WWF Hardcore Championship]] once and the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wwe/ic.html WWF Intercontinental Championship]] once.
